Mike Trout went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Thursday's loss to the Rays.

With the 0-for-4 on Thursday, Trout is now bogged down in an 0-for-19 slump, the worst of his illustrious career. Even with his recent struggles taken into account, he is still putting up all-universe numbers on the whole. For the campaign, Trout is slashing .290/.431/.600 with 12 home runs, 25 RBI, 34 runs scored and eight steals across 155 at-bats. He'll bust out of his recent doldrums soon enough.
May 18 - 1:26 AM

Mike Trout went 0-for-2 with two walks and a run scored in a loss to the Astros on Tuesday.

Trout now hasn't picked up a hit in four games. He's also walked seven times in that same time frame, so the best player in baseball is still finding a way to get on base even when the hits aren't falling. Trout's season line now sits at .306/.449/.633 on the season, and he's hit 12 homers and stolen eight bases in his 42 games in 2018.
May 16 - 1:42 AM

Mike Trout is absent from the Angels' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day of rest for the best player on the planet. Chris Young will cover center field in Trout's absence.
May 13 - 12:59 PM

Mike Trout walked four times on Saturday in an extra-innings loss to the Twins on Saturday.

Trout didn't pick up a hit in the loss, but he did reach four times via bases on balls, and he's on pace to have 141 free passes on the 2018 campaign. Over 39 games, Trout now has a .317/.453/.655 line to go along with 13 homers, 25 RBI and eight stolen bases in as many chances.
May 13 - 1:47 AM

Mike Trout remained red hot in Sunday's 8-2 win over the Mariners, going 3-for-4 with a three-run home run and a stolen base.

The three-hit game was the third in a row, and his fourth consecutive multi-hit game. During a five-game hitting streak, the 26-year-old is 12-for-21 with two homers, six RBI and eight runs scored. Overall, Trout is among the league leaders in nearly every category, slashing .336/.458/.720 with 12 homers, 24 RBI, 29 runs scored and six steals.
May 6 - 9:10 PM

Mike Trout went 2-for-5 with an RBI triple, an RBI single and two runs scored in Thursday's easy win over the Orioles.

Trout cracked an RBI triple off Chris Tillman in the first inning, the first of five runs to score in the frame. He would follow up with an RBI single to chase Tillman -- who allowed seven total runs -- in the second inning. The perennial MVP candidate is off to a .297/.432/.658 start to the campaign and has bopped 11 home runs with 21 runs driven in across 111 at-bats. He's also stolen five bases without being caught once.
May 4 - 1:27 AM

Mike Trout finished 1-for-2 with a solo home run, two walks and two runs scored in Wednesday's 10-7 victory against Baltimore.

Trout snapped a five-game stretch without a home run, his longest such drought of the season. Still, he is up to 11 homers, and his 0-for-6 performance on Opening Day is a distant memory. He is tied for the major league lead with Boston's Mookie Betts, an unlikely co-leader in the category.
May 3 - 3:00 AM

Mike Trout became the first player to reach double figures in homers when he took Charlie Morton deep on Tuesday.

Trout also walked twice tonight. For all of his success, he's yet to lead the AL in homers and has actually finished in the top 10 in the league just twice (he was third in both 2014 and 2015). Perhaps it's time for that to change.
Apr 25 - 12:18 AM

Mike Trout went 1-for-3 with a walk and two steals against the Astros on Monday.

Trout not only leads the league with nine homers, but he's 5-for-5 stealing bases in the early going. Maybe he intends to aim for his first 30-30 season since his Rookie of the Year campaign in 2012. He has stolen 30 bases twice since, but they were in the only two seasons in which he didn't hit 30 homers (27 homers in 2013, 29 homers in 2016).
Apr 23 - 11:19 PM

Mike Trout hit a two-run home run in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Trout hit what a laser to the opposite field that just never dropped, clearing the right field wall for a two-run blast. The homer was his league-leading ninth of the season, and his 17 RBI and 18 runs scored also rank near the top of the AL. No slow start here, Trout once again looks like an MVP candidate, batting .306/.406/.682 through 22 games.
Apr 22 - 9:17 PM

Mike Trout finished 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and a solo home run in Saturday's 4-3 victory against San Francisco.

Trout entered the game with three total extra-base hits over his past eight outings. The three extra-base hits were his most in a single game since he also had two doubles and a home run in a game June 27, 2016 against Houston. RHP Johnny Cueto will look to cool off Trout in Sunday's series finale. Trout is just 1-for-6 (.167) with a strikeout in their brief dealings.
Apr 22 - 2:19 AM

Mike Trout went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 8-1 loss against the Giants.

The Angels forgot their hitting shoes in the clubhouse, as they were only able to account for five total hits. Trout was the only player to do anything, reaching base three times. He is now up to seven homers with 14 RBI to lead the Halos in both categories. He'll look to stay hot against LHP Derek Holland, a pitcher he knows well from Holland's days in Texas. Trout is 14-for-45 (.311) with three doubles, a triple, three homers and 12 RBI with a 1.011 OPS in his career against the lefty.
Apr 21 - 1:50 AM

Mike Trout went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Royals.

Trout took Royals starter Jake Junis deep for a two-run shot with two outs in the fifth inning. The perennial MVP candidate is off to a .266/.377/.594 start to the season and has now homered six times while driving in 13 runs. Trout has homered in three of his last five games. He's already got the power stroke going and his average figures to blossom as the weather warms.
Apr 14 - 11:41 PM

Mike Trout went 3-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored, and the Angels topped the Royals 7-1 on Thursday.

The game was actually much closer than the final score indicates, with the Angels scoring just one run through the first six innings. They broke out for five runs in the seventh, including Trout's single and run scored, and he capped the scoring with a solo shot in the eighth. Trout is now tied with White Sox third baseman Matt Davidson for the league lead with five homers, and he's tied with Mookie Betts atop the leaderboard with 14 runs scored as well. The Angels are now 11-3 on the back of Trout, Shohei Ohtani and company.
